I think there are 2 shows of this up for download on Xbox live or something cause each of those suckers is 500+ MB. Also there is a new Test Drive demo up.

Those are episodes of the TV show! Very nice if you've got kids about, or you're easily amused! :P

it's Rare, they'll fix it. Remember the early Kameo and PDZ builds . . ... they have all the time they need (want)

Yea... If I see another edge on a character I'm not going to play a game ever again...


The term "jaggies" is old gamer speak for a dead issue here... the only way you will see perfectly straight lines is with anything above AAx200... "jaggies" are a none-issue above AAx16 however.

I hate that fur effect... it looks absolute crap in screenshots, but kinda nice in realtime

Brilliant, like cgi. I hope it will run faster that 2 fps ;)

Don't know if it has been fixed yet.

Are you totally sure you aren't seeing the fur shading and blindly mistaking it for jaggies?

Looks great. Rare to the next-gen visual rescue.

Though these shots have a more misty atmosphere than the others, possibly dawn or cloudy. The last shot looks as crisp as before.

Cant believe. Microsoft have posted their first tv show on XBL..
Now the door's open, anything can be next..
Good enough humour for me and the game will/shud be good

I dont know if you guys have ever seen a pinata in real life, but the "fur effect" is what pinata's really look like, they have little squares of paper all over them
Hopefully I am just misunderstanding what you are saying

I watched the two episodes up on Marketplace in HD and I was really impressed. The show is good. I think it will be another big hit for 4Kids.

Visually the cartoon is very nice to look at and the game is surprisingly close to the visuals of the tv show. Even the voice acting was really good. The cartoon seems more like animated movie quality than Saturday morning cartoon fare.

im 37 but i can see me getting this for its stunning color's and eyecandy.

According to gamerscoreblog, the reported slow running demo on the show floor was because it was a retail kiosk. The retail systems are locked down, and the game was trying to autosave repeatadly (which of course was failing), significantly draining resources.
So basically they stuffed up.
